Forcing people to die of famine, malnutrition, disease and neglect is not directly killing them

XFinity, like all organizations now, has a lossy fragmented distributed information system.

#XfinitySupport I had to rest for a while, but did go over my experiences with XFinity in recent days and weeks and years.

Global open resources – discussions, suggestions, links, knowledge – where all share in exploring

The near future might have many synthesized foods, materials and experiences

The near future might have many synthesized foods, materials and experiences — The rumor on the Internet is that most “olive oil” is already a substitute. If it truly disappeared, there are ways to make oils by blending that can substitute. And ways to make it by building molecules with industrial chemical processes. There are

Vinyl records as an example of beginning a “global open resource”, Global Open Resources, Translation Ids

Jorge, To become a global open resource for any topic or any resource is not hard, it takes dedication, patience, and years.
